Excerpt from Monthly Bulletin of the Department of Health, City of New York, Vol. 10: January, 1920

After one of these borrowing excursions, one of these less fortunate individuals approached one more fortunate and asked for a part of a shot. The poor addict had his little outfit ready to take a dose; he was pale, anxious, and apparently suffer ing keenly. He pinched up his skin, turning and twisting the needle point, sent it home, slowly injecting the solution, and when about half accomplished, noticing the despair on his companion's face, he withdrew the needle, and turned his syringe over, half filled, to his pal in misery. The poor chap had felt that he needed a little, but also that he could divide with one who appeared to need it more than he, so he took sufficient to set him, and willingly passed over the outfit to his beseeching companion in misery. This beggar seized the outfit, jabbed the needle through clothing and all into his belly skin and slowly shot the contents, to the last drop, home.

Having witnessed this charitable and brotherly act, I waited and, when the outfit was returned, I had it refilled and returned to its owner. This chap dropped to his knees and' kissed [my shoes. I tried to restrain him, and told him the Clinic was intended to aid and comfort those in need. Imagine my chagrin, to observe, on the following day, the same game practiced by others, clearly stamping this as a ruse, a frame-up, to obtain the drug without paying, by playing upon the emotions of those in charge. Persons that practice such deceptions to serve their selfish purposes are not on the square, and cannot be trusted because they incite others to practice further impositions.
